Labers

The outstanding building of Labers, which is part of Merano, is the homonymous castle.

Labers Castle dates back to the 11th century and is located in the homonymous village among fruit orchards and vineyards. Particularly in the second World War this castle had a central role to play, as it was production facility for phony pound sterlings and US dollars. In 1885 this castle was renovated and two towers were added. Moreover the castle was transformed into an accommodation, where so far several celebrities such as the poet Paul Heyse as well as Gertrud von Le Fort and Stefan Zweig have been lodging. Still open to the public is the castle chapel S. Michael, dating back to the 15th century.
